10 Ways to Not Sell Your House
When it comes to selling a home, these unforgivable no-no's top the charts. Use this checklist to make sure you won't lose potential buyers on account of an unkempt yard or those dirty dishes.
Leave out your pictures, magazines, books, and knickknacks. You want a prospective buyer to feel that they know you, right?
Wrong. You want buyers to immediately begin imagining themselves living in your house, and they’ll have a hard time seeing beyond the pictures of your family at Beaver Creek and the old issues of Garden & Gun. Even worse, they might find your taste in books laughable or your choice of evening wear tacky and decide they couldn’t possibly live in your house.
So clear every surface, every side table, every coffee table, the sideboard, the desk, and the dining room table. You can put one item in each room, and it should be a plant or a flower arrangement.
